Hello everyone! New member here looking for some suggestions. I have been riding for as long as I can remember and have never been out West. Me and my group are all very experianced and usually dont leave the terrain park when were riding. Im sure there more to Colorado then jumps and rails and thats prob not what I shoudl focus my trip on correct?
Like the title states, me and 3 buddies are renting a car with plans to drive to Colorado. Were all from the Midwest, none of us have even been to Colorado.
We were thinking Breckenridge/keystone/Vail area. originally Breckenridge but after reading through this forum it has kinda diverted me from Breck because all of the Crowded talk...We want fresh powder, nice park and exclusiveness. Ski in and out location, is a must, outdoor hottubs and pools would just top it off as well. Any resort recommendations?
I really appreciate the opinions, I will be reading more all day!
OP, pardon these guys. They're purists and don't know the plight (or at least have a hard time remembering) of one who loves the sport but has minimal access to the goods. If you're looking for the easiest shot, for a four-day trip from Chicago...give the Front-Range/Summit County a shot.
You'll probably get snobby after the experience and after a few trips want bigger and better (where suggestios like Big Sky come-into play), but if you're looking for the easiest drive with the best options I'll make a few suggestions...
2 days at Winter Park and Two days at Loveland
2 @ Breckenridge and 2 @ A-Basin
2 @ Vail and 2 at Loveland
You could do 4 days at any of the bigger resorts, but I suggest spreading the experience out over a few resorts.
From a frequent traveler who likes to maximize his time with limited days, that would be my suggestion.
